The thing that makes you strong / It also makes you weak
You don't know right from wrong / And lies are all you speak
You seem to think you're funny / But you just know how to hurt
Your only love is money / But you don't know what it's worth

You tell me that you're clever / And you treat me like a fool
You think you'll live forever / You take pride in being cruel
You think that we're all jealous / That we want to be like you
And everything you tell us / Turns out to be untrue

You'll go down in history, your future's quite secure
But it's still a mystery what you will go down for

I just can't understand / How you can sleep at night
The world's at your command / But your heart is full of spite
The only time you're happy / Is when someone else is sad
Sometimes I think you're evil / But sometimes I think you're mad

You've no respect for anyone / You have to be the boss
You're only glad if you have won / And someone else has lost
You've never loved your neighbour / And your money is your god
You're scared of honest labour / And you've always been a fraud

You don't seem to care if you end up in hell
You might lose your soul and lose the world as well

Devoid of introspection / Yet completely self-obsessed
You never show affection / And you always feel oppressed
Nobody is perfect / And nobody is pure
Each of us does wrong sometimes / Of that we can be sure
